Motorola is now pushing out the Lollipop update to all unlocked models of the second-generation Moto G currently located in the United Kingdom. This upgrade carries the latest version of the Android operating system, together with a multitude of new features, bug fixes and stability improvements to your handset.
Manufacturers are said to be rolling out the Android Wear 5.0.2 update to a series of smartwatches today. As of now, users of the the LG G Watch R as well as the Samsung Gear Live are reportedly seeing the update notifications on their devices.
Moto X 2nd Gen users on US Cellular are the next in line for some update sweetness with Android 5.0.2.
We’ve seen some rumors on Android 5.1 already, and now we’re getting hints from Mo Versi, HTC’s vice president of product management, that the update is on its way.
After being prodded by a Twitter follower on when a bug in the Google Play Edition of the One M7 would be fixed, Versi responded by tweeting, “It’ll be tied to Google’s next MR, which is in March. Thanks.”
This could be hinting at the forthcoming Android 5.1, and it’s nice to have a bit more information from a more reliable source. Of course, the tweet’s content is open for debate and leaves room for interpretation, but this tidbit is what we’ve got to work with for now.
Samsung has at last started rolling out the eagerly-awaited and much-anticipated Lollipop update to all unlocked models of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, in Germany. This upgrade transports the latest version of the Android operating system, together with a multitude of new features, bug fixes and stability improvements.
The Nvidia Shield Tablet received its first taste of Android Lollipop back in December, and here it is getting a second helping with Tablet Software Update 2.2. Both the WiFi and LTE versions of the tablet are eligible to receive this latest update, which is based on Android 5.0.1. The update brings a few new PC games to play via its GRID cloud gaming service such as Grid 2 and PixelJunk Shooter amongst others. There are also compatibility tweaks and bugfixes present, as can be seen from the changelog below.
It’s only a few hours ago that a Nexus 5 was spotted running Android 5.1 on GeekBench, which by itself is pretty exciting even though we have scant details about what improvements it brings. But that was a few hours ago. Today, we have another Nexus 5 being put through its paces on GeekBench, and this time it’s running Android 5.2. Allegedly, that is.
Nexus devices are usually the first to receive updates, so their updates tend to serve as a preview for things to come. A Nexus device has done just that for us today by running a Geekbench test while running Lollipop 5.1.
Samsung has been fiercely rolling out Lollipop updates to all of its eligible devices, like the S5, Note 3, S4, and Note 4, and the Note Edge is no exception.
A few weeks ago, Verizon shocked everyone when it became the first carrier in the United States to push Android 5.0 to the Galaxy S 5. Look back at Verizon’s history in updating its devices and you will find that the updates are either extremely slow or nonexistent. So it is great to see some changes at Big Red. Now, many people with the HTC One (M8) on Verizon are waiting to receive Lollipop. HTC Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi, essentially the company’s spokesperson for software updates, took to Twitter to provide some information.
